How To Beat The Five Killers Of Virtual Working

How To Beat The Five Killers Of Virtual Working | Virtual R&D teams | Scoop.it

[Sebastian Bailey - Forbes blog]

In a previous post I asked the question: does working from home work? The answer from a Chinese company was a resounding yes. Home workers were 13% more productive, happier in their jobs and less likely to leave than their office-bound peers.  Virtual working saves money, is better for the environment and gives staff the flexibility they crave, so it’s no wonder that more and more organisations are encouraging it.

 

Despite these benefits Marissa Meyer has asked Yahoo employees to schlep into the office.  And if you take a close look at the evidence the challenges of virtual working threaten to outweigh the benefits. In 2000, Wayne Cascioidentified five disadvantages of virtual teams, none of which have been resolved by 12 years of technological advances. Overcoming these obstacles isn’t about high-definition video conferencing; it’s about effective leadership that accounts for the nuances of the virtual environment.

Some Tips For Virtual Team Of Startup Company

Some Tips For Virtual Team Of Startup Company | Virtual R&D teams | Scoop.it

[Martin Zwilling - VisionWiz blog]

Almost every startup is a virtual team these days, since most don’t start out with dedicated office space, and some or all members of the team work part-time or out of their own home. It’s a small world, so these team members may not even be in the same town, or the same country. Outsourcing is just another extension of the virtual team concept to people you don’t even know.

 

Working effectively with a virtual team of any sort has many challenges. How do entrepreneurs establish and maintain rapport with people they rarely see, and team members who have never met? How do they keep track of what everyone is doing and assure effective communication between all team members?

 

Experts on this subject, including Yael Zofi, in her recent book, “A Manager’s Guide to Virtual Teams,” has identified eight key characteristics of high-performing virtual teams, which every startup founder should understand and enable:

How to Build a Culture of Sharing in Distributed Project Teams, and More Questions from PMI Dallas Chapter Dinner

How to Build a Culture of Sharing in Distributed Project Teams,  and More Questions from PMI Dallas Chapter Dinner | Virtual R&D teams | Scoop.it

[Andrew Filev - Project Management 2.0]

After the short holiday break, the new year quickly gained momentum. The first event on my 2013 speaking calendar was the dinner meeting at PMI Dallas Chapter. The topic of remote collaboration and its efficiency brought up a great discussion. The engagement of the audience is a clear sign of how many project managers face the challenge of dealing with mobile workforce today. And the trend  will only expand: as Wrike’s survey revealed, every fourth worker foresees his or her office going virtual in the near future. Of the numerous post-presentation questions, there were a couple that were especially interesting, and I’d like to share some takeaway notes with you.

Effective Leadership in a Virtual Workforce

Effective Leadership in a Virtual Workforce | Virtual R&D teams | Scoop.it

[Donna Dennis, Debora Meola, M.J. Hall - ASTD T+D Magazine]

Research indicates that one of the most critical challenges facing organizations is developing leaders with the requisite skills to succeed in the global and complex work environment. In 2012, members of the ASTD Forum explored many ideas related to the theme of "Enhancing Executive Global Leadership Skills" as part of their inaugural workshop for members residing in India. The research included investigating various dimensions of global leadership—what is unique about it, what are the major challenges, what are the key competencies needed, and what learning strategists need to focus on for developmental experiences.

Virtual Team Managers: Do You Have These Essential Managerial Competencies?

[Virtual Teambuilders blog]

A virtual manager is more than a figurehead, email address or phone number. Research has shown that the specific relationship a virtual team manager develops with his or her team members matters a great deal when it comes to steering a virtual team toward success. An effective team manager will build trust, encourage motivation, and produce wonderful results within their team; conversely, a weak team manager who does not possess essential managerial competencies could create a fragmented team who doesn’t see much of success at all. Having said all that, we should go into a bit more detail. What are the specific managerial competencies of an effective virtual manager?
